NNSW works with people in sex work, that is, men, women and transgender and their organisations. It also works with state and non state agencies such as Government bodies, judiciary, women's organisations, anti-trafficking agencies for advocacy.
NNSW is a network of sex worker organisations and supporting NGOs. It has a sex worker board which is the decision making body. The member organisations of sex workers have voting power and the supporting member NGO do not have voting power.
Though sex work is not illegal in India, it is not also legal. All the third party activities are criminal. Families (adults) supported by sex workers lie under criminals. Since it is not decriminalised, sex workers' livelihood and rights are at stake. There is no work status or acceptance of sex work as work.
Sex work is seen as immoral, there is a lot of stigma and discrimination at all levels. From self, family, community, society and Government. Sex workers are not able to access rights and entitlements or services that is leading them to various health and social hazards.
